Monday , Posted by AME at 11:03 AM

Young people participating in the program Cotswold Aviation Airport Fellowship completed with flying colors.

Ten budding aviators were selected from more than 80 applications from young people across Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

The programme now in its fifth year and is aimed at young people aged 14-18 years. Funded by the airport managing director and owner Ronan Harvey is held in conjunction with the airport on fly2help charity and local business aviation.

The scholarships give students a taste of flying and aeronautical engineering with visits to aviation businesses and talks from professionals from pilots to engineers.

Airport director Suzannah Harvey said: "To give young people the opportunity to take their first steps on a career path in aviation is very rewarding indeed and everyone involved with the scholarships is absolutely delighted the students appear to have taken so much away from their experience.”

Planning for next year's scholarship scheme has started and applications will be taken from October 1. The programme is scheduled to run at Easter 2012.
